There are people who, unnoticed, currently guard us. Our physicians – doctors, nurses, sanitary wards in 9 hospitals in Daugavpils, Liepāja, Ventspils, Rēzekne, Jelgava, Valmiera, Jēkabpils and 3 in Riga – Tuberculosis hospital, Stradiņi and Austrumu hospitals. They work 24 hours a day, closed mode, dressed in overalls, masks, without replacement and tired. Endangered as during the war in the front line.
We cannot grant these heroes with the state bonuses, but we can express our respect and gratitude to them delivering warm food daily or during their stay at home!
It has been done by the movement “Table for Our People” since the spring wave of the Covid. Every day about 300 dinners for hospitals and emergency assistance in Riga and a little – in Jelgava has been provided. It is possible thanks to private and corporate donations. Money comes in for restaurants and canteens that have responded to the invitation – food is prepared and delivered to hospitals in Riga.
But – there is not money enough to support rural hospital doctors. Riga Rīdzene Rotary club invites Rotarians all over Latvia, charity organizations and each of us and our friends to support the initiative. These are hard times for our Fatherland and people must come to help!
Let’s address friends, businessmen, neighbors to donate as much as everyone can, let’s address the caterers, bread bakers, meat processing plants and farmers in Liepaja and Daugavpils, Jelgava, In Ventspils, Rēzekne and Valmiera – each for their own local county hospital, but all together – for Latvia. Riga Rīdzene Rotary club is ready to organize the coordination of contacts between donators, caterers and regional county hospitals.
